Beylerbeyi Palace

Recommended
Beylerbey Palace faces Ortaköy, on the other side of the bridge. This former summer palace, clad in marble and surrounded by gardens, was built in 1865 for the Sultan Abdülaziz (1830-1876) and hosted guests such as Empress Eugénie of France. The rooms' electic styles mingle western and eastern influences. The highlight of the visit is the Reception room on the ground-floor and its huge Rococo pool that refreshed the atmosphere during the hot summers.
